South Woodham Ferrers Pubs

South Woodham Ferrers pubs are well supported by residents. Each has its own special character and attracts people for specific events. The Whalebone used to be always packed to overflowing when a football match was shown on the huge TV. Visit the Railway Pub to see live football and enjoy the atmosphere.

Quiz nights are held in certain pubs - come and test your knowledge with friends over a pint.

Families flock to the pubs with gardens on warm and sunny summer weekends.

Live music attracts its own following and the pubs that have performers every week are the Oakland Hotel and the Lodge. The Whalebone holds special events with music and entertainers.
